  • What can u use PCI slot for?

    So I am curious, most the things you would put into a PCI slot you can do w/ USB.

    So what would u use a PCI slot for... besides the obvious video card?

    ummm.... everything?!

    And the advantage over USB is internal, and higher bandwith, and usually better devices.

        I don't think I have seen a full sized bluetooth PCI card... But that is not because they can't, it is because who would want that?! They have bluetooth and bluetooth/wlan combo's in mini-pci format...

        Other than that, I have seen everything in both formats at one time or another.

        ALso there are usb-->pci adapters, and of course pci-->usb adapters, so I think that pretty much covers everything.

          RAID controllers.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

            There are USB harddrive units that have 4 drives in a RAID sequence. THerefore there must be a RAID controller somewhere along the USB line.

            If you were to crack one of those open you would get yourself a USB RAID controller. An expensive one, but it would work...
